Silvana Dettmann
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
Switzerland
I'm an ongoing scientific illustrator studying Scientific Visualization at the ZHdK in Zurich and I'm currently in my second year of studies after I studied Biology for five semesters at the UZH in Zurich. Though I study and live most of the week in a flat in Zurich with my roomies, I spend most of my weekends and holidays at home in Zernez in the middle of the Engadin valley.

My interests are biology, especially zoology, paleontology and evolution, since I always loved to know about nature and it's inhabitants. I'm also interested in medicine, history (Vikings, Germans, Romans, Rhaetians and other ancient cultures), enviromental science and geoscience ranging from Earth to extraplanetar systems. I also keep pets (birds, fish, amphibians), go hunt, hike and dive. It's safe to say that I got a very vast field of interests.
One of my other great passions besides of science are sci-fi and gaming, meaning that I'm a sucker for the Aliens (AvP) and the Halo franchise. Though I tend to draw a lot of fanart in my spare time, I'm not one of those fangirls who pretend to be one of their original Mary Sue characters in real life, draw tons of smut and ERP all day to compensate for something or weird stuff like that. I'm quite a reasonable fan.
If you look at my gallery, you'll mostly find either scientific stuff like paleontology or zoology I do at the university or sci-fi and fanart I do in my spare time :)

My mother tongue is Rumansh but I speak German fluently as well and I'm quite good with English. I also understand a good part from French and Italian and to a certain degree Spanish. As you see, communication shouldn't be a problem if you do want to speak about my art. Comments of any kind are welcomed! :D

Interests
My body seems to have some problems since about half a year or a bit more but today was the first time I got cramps so hard I had to leave the lectures, go to the hospital and get me some pills to numb the pain. I'm kinda fine right now after some meds and a hot bath, so I really hope I'll be alright for the lectures tomorrow again (anatomy, yay!). Still I have no idea what's going on with my body since a few months with those weird symptoms. I've been doing some first tests and health checks two weeks ago and so far I seem to be in a good shape besides of those embarrassing symptoms (don't ask...) that came out of nowhere. I'm still waiting for the results of my blood screen they check for hormonal imbalance and stuff but at least I'm negative for cervical cancer. Yay =P
Anyways, I have no idea what it could be. Psychologically I'm fine as well after puking out the bad stuff at the start of this year, so yep, the soul doc says I'm perfectly sane, even though I sometimes draw weird gore stuff :D No idea, so I guess all I can do is play the waiting game and hope that it's nothing serious. And if they find nothing, I'll have to dig deeper. Maybe stress, lack of rest or whatever since I've worked nonstop since about a year. I really have no clue but at least the cramps may speed up the research process now.

But yeah, I don't want to whine around or anything. Just wanted to say that I'll probably have to go to the hospital a lot in the next time in order to check on stuff, so I don't know how regular I'll be able to post art. I sure got a lot of digital stuff who's waiting half-finished on my desktop to be done, ugh. Oh and I did a lot of anatomical studies lately and it's really awesome to finally draw Steve with nice muscles! I'll post them as soon as I know where the hell they put the A2 scanner.
For now I need some rest though in order to get well as soon as possible, so I can go back to drawing school stuff. Wish me luck for my medical tests and I'll be back as soon as possible =)

I'm thinking of making a Tumblr account to spread my art and be a bit more professional. What do you think I should add there to keep people interested in my art?
